22 Aug

You made us laugh.

You made us cry.

You make us think.

Majestic Mountains

7 Aug

The flight from Rome to Chicago is about 10.5 hours, hopefully uneventful and always pretty boring. But occasionally, one can catch a glimpse of nature and its magnificent show.  I believe these are over Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, from about 33,000+ feet above. They were shot with my iPhone and are shown in the order taken. Note the changes in snow cover.

If you look closely (or click on the photo below to enlarge), you can see towns in the valley.

Last stop, Chicago. A bit cloudy, but a welcome sight for sure!

Saturday’s Market

2 Aug

Missing Italy, and missing the usual Saturday mercato, we headed to our local city market early this morning.

Although we were tempted en route…

we resisted, reminding ourselves of the morning pastry ritual we had decided to leave behind.

So on we went in search of what we would grill tonight, and we were not disappointed…

When we got home, our purchases looked like a beautiful watercolor…

For lunch, I made a barley and farro salad with some of the veggies.
